What is a 'Healthy Kids' Registered Product.

The Healthy Kids Association (Healthy Kids) is an organisation Based in Sydney NSW. Schools across Australia are looking for healthy food and drinks to sell in their canteens and rely on the Healthy Kids Product Registration Scheme to assist them. The Healthy Kids Product Registration Scheme is the leading food and drink registration program for school canteens. It is highly regarded and trusted by canteen managers to assist them to make healthy choices, easy choices. School canteen managers can be confident that registered products have been independently assessed by the Healthy Kids Food and Nutrition Team dietitians and nutritionists, meet the Healthy Kids Nutrient Criteria and are better choices for their school canteen.

Healthy Kids have specific Green and Amber Nutrient Criteria for 54 different food & drink categories.
